Climbing is a great upper body activity that requires agility, balance, strength, and confidence. Further, kids of all ages love to climb, and these Notched Post Climbs are perfect, simple, easy-to-install climbers made from real trees.

To climb these logs, kids have to hug the tree (which puts them in touch with the bark and the smell of the wood), and work their way up the ladder, notch by notch. They can't see their feet, so part of the fun is to "feel" around with each foot in order to find the next notch -- until they reach the last one.

These Post Climbs can be adjusted in height to accommodate older or younger children (just let us know the age group), and because they are installed within a ring of fall zone material, jumping or falling off the post at any height is perfectly safe.

If you're looking for a simple, inexpensive, natural climbing activity, this is the one for you and your children!

Post Climb varies between 10" and 12" diameter and is typically 6' high. A Kid-Friendly treated base support is buried in the ground. Comes with installation instructions.
